Survival Run always has a fundraising component in their races. This year, they are trying to bring clean water.
As Survival Run has progressed so has this fundraising cause for the students on the island. This year, athletes Jeff Murphy and John Taylor have led the way to raise money prior to reaching the island. This year’s project, bring water filtration systems to schools on the island. Many of the small villages on Ometepe have a problem with clean water. With these Green Hitechs gravity water filters (below), even the lake water can be purified to be safe. Ometepe is in the center of Lake Nicaragua.
